DON’T DELAY OUR PAY RISE: Wages cannot go backwards

This campaign has ended.

A pay rise is desperately needed for office and admin workers to keep up with the cost of living and inflation in 2022.

The Australian Services Union is calling for these workers to have a 5.5% wage increase in the 2022 National Wage Case.

Lifting the minimum wage would mean lifting the wages of 1 in 4 workers.

The newly elected Labor Government has recommended that the Fair Work Commission ensures the real wages of Australia’s low-paid workers do not go backwards.

Join our campaign for a 5.5% wage increase and demand the Fair Work Commission delivers a meaningful pay rise that will allow us to finally keep up with the cost of living.

Without a real pay rise delivered now, our wages will continue to go backwards.

Why is this important?

Australia has a cost-of-living crisis.

Rent, petrol, food, childcare, are all going up. Inflation is rising. Slow wage growth is fast outstripping the cost of living.

Our claim for a 5.5% rise to the minimum wage is critical for workers to keep their heads above water.

The Annual Wage Review is the ONLY guaranteed wage increase anywhere in the economy.

Your pay rise only comes about from union members coming together to win what we need and deserve.

Supporting our claim would mean workers are better off. Remember, improving the minimum wage benefits all of us.

Without a real pay rise delivered now, wages will continue to go backwards.

ASU member, Harvey, says it all:
“When you’re paying rent, bills and food with the entirety of your wage, an additional $40 per week would go a long way.”

Make sure you have your say in your wage increase.,get involved and join the union to win the pay increase you need.

All workers deserve the chance to plan for the future.

And we cannot afford another delay.
